    I watched part 1 of a 2 part program on BBC4
    Eugenics: Science's Greatest Scandal

    UCL is the 'birthplace' of Eugenics dating back to 1904 (Sir Francis Galton see wikipedia
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Francis_Galton )

    There has been an inquiry (ongoing) since last year.

    Angela Saini is one of the BBC4 program presenters and wrote a piece in the Guardian about the issues raised.
